Leather car seat covers are becoming more and more popular due to the fact that you now have more choices than ever! From leather accent seat covers, to sheepskin car seat covers.
Many people go in search of leather car seat covers for a variety of reasons:
The Many Benefits of Sheepskin Seat Covers
Layer of Protection: Sheepskins offer a layer of protection that creates a level of comfort and opulence to your cars interior that is above and beyond traditional car seat covers. Nothing enhances and adds an additional layer of opulence and protection to leather car seating in the unique way quality sheepskin seat covers do!
The Opulent Factor: Leather car seat covers add a level of opulence whether you are choosing to use them in a car with cloth seating or leather seating. The look of plush, natural sheepskins adorning your car seating adds a level of opulence in a way that only natural sheepskin covers can do.
Insulation: It doesn't take long to realize that while leather trimmed car upholstery adds its own level of opulence, leather car seating is by nature the worst of both worlds; hot and sticky in the summer, cold and uninviting in the winter. A bad combination that can easily be remedied with quality leather car seat covers traditionally in the form of natural sheepskin.
The Drawbacks of Sheepskin Seat Covers
Expensive: There is no mystery here; quality leather car seat covers are not cheap and this is not an area where getting "cheap" is recommended as there are many cheap versions of covers that will be nothing but disappointment.
Difficult to Install: Depending on the brand you choose, installing sheepskin seat covers can be rather time consuming. Read the reviews and make an educated determination based on you and your experience as a do-it-yourselfer.
Difficult to Clean: Most people who install these type of leather car seat covers never clean the sheepskins for multiple reasons: it would require removal to have them cleaned professionally (which once again is a pain in the butt), professional dry cleaning doesn't clean them very well and once a person does it once (if a person ever does) they quickly question the effectiveness of the dry cleaning process and quickly conclude it's not worth the trouble and expense.
Dirt is Collected Underneath: Anyone who has had sheepskins on their car seats for any length of time and has removed them for cleaning or to remove them permanently will come to the rude awakening of how much dirt is trapped beneath the sheepskins over time.
